French Strike Dec 2019/Early 2020

Trade Unions in France have called for a nationwide general strike from 5 December 2019.

The strike action will impact our ability to deliver the usual timetable as we expect disruption to signalling along all routes. As a result, we will now run a reduced timetable until 12th January 2020.

There will be major disruption to Metro and RER services in Paris and connecting trains to all destinations within France.
